David Sterza Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2017
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Valpolicella|
Red wine of great importance, full-bodied, intense and elegant. The word “Amarone” dates back to the eighteenth century when was it was necessary to identify a wine produced from dried grapes, such as Recioto, but with completely different organoleptic properties. The David Sterza is a traditional Valpolicella blend of Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara varietals in the style of Amarone. This wine is dark ruby red with aromas of raisins, leather, and blackberry. The tannins are like gossamer and the soft acidity gives rise to the rich blackberry and raspberry compote, cedar, and spice. A long, smooth finish of toasted wood and juicy raisins.
